More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

113k people get virus test

Over 113,000 people had their specimens collected at 21 community testing centres (CTCs) and 35 mobile specimen collection stations on May 1, a record high for daily specimen collection at those places, the Government announced.   Among them, more than 52,000 are foreign domestic helpers.   As of 6pm today, over 54,000 specimens have been tested and no preliminarily positive result has been found so far.   The Food & Health Bureau thanked the public for their co-operation in undergoing compulsory testing for COVID-19.   There are nearly 40,000 booking places available for the next seven days at the 21 CTCs where booking and walk-in services are available, it added.   Members of the public may call the testing centres for enquiries on the availability of bookings or walk-in quotas before visiting.   Given the surge in testing demand within a short period, the Government will set up one more mobile specimen collection station at Sai Ying Pun Community Complex tomorrow for people subject to compulsory testing.   It will also extend the service period of the stations at King George V Memorial Park, Kowloon, MacPherson Playground and Arthur Street Temporary Playground in Yau Ma Tei to May 10 and those at 100 Granville Road in Tsim Sha Tsui East and Hankow Road in Tsim Sha Tsui to May 16.
